I have 3 radio buttons in a Symantec radio button group panel.  How can I make it so that none are selected after I press a button?  I am using java 1.0.2.

if(l_status.equalsIgnoreCase("R"))
{
    rdoRegisteredUser.setState(true);
}
else if(l_status.equalsIgnoreCase("C"))
{
    rdoContributor.setState(true);
}
else if(l_status.equalsIgnoreCase("A"))
{
    rdoAuthor.setState(true);
}

Thanks, HellBentroadhog

Strictly speaking, it is not proper to have all buttons in a radio group deselected; the idea is that you are making a choice, not initiating an action.  If none of the choices are valid, you should disable the buttons by calling setEnabled( false ) on each of them.

If you still do want to deselect them all, call setSelectedCheckbox( null ) on their associated CheckboxGroup.
